Internal and External Awards

The External Scholarships and Undergraduate Research Center helps students find and apply for merit-based internal and external awards.

Our office maintains a database of external awards which we update twice each year. The Scholarships and Other Award Resources (SOAR) database contains opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students and includes scholarships, fellowships, grants, research and internship opportunities, essay contests, and more.

In addition to external awards, our office oversees internal merit-based awards such as the Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence, the President's Awards for Undergraduate Student Excellence, and the Provost's Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Student Research. See current and past student award winners.
